In an interview Sunday with NBC Carson, a devout Christian, said that Islam was incompatible with the Constitution and the values and principles of America.
Here is a partial transcript of the interview between Meet The Press host Chuck Todd and Dr. Carson...
Todd: Should a President's faith matter? Should your faith matter to voters?
Carson: Well, I guess it depends on what that faith is. If it's inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter. But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the constitution, no problem.
Todd: So do you believe that Islam is consistent with the constitution?
Carson: No, I don’t, I do not… I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.

Just to prove he wasn't a complete Islamophobe Carson did however say he would be more open to voting for a Muslim Congressional candidate claiming that “Congress is a different story,"
